ABC Reconciles With Adam Lambert
'American Idol' runner-up Adam Lambert landed in trouble for locking lips on ABC, with his controversial same-sex kiss on the recent AMA broadcast. This time he's smooching the network itself, as ABC plays a little kiss-and-make-up with Lambert following the singer's dismissal from multiple ABC appearances. PEOPLE is reporting that Lambert will appear on 'The View' Thursday.
Lambert's provocative performance on the American Music Awards - in which he thrust his crotch into a dancer's face, dragged two male dancers around on a leash and engaged in a makeout session with his male keyboardist - preceded the singer's dismissal from 'Good Morning America' and the New Year's Eve episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
In a Twitter post last week, Lambert told his fans "Yes, sadly friends, ABC has cancelled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE. :( don't blame them. It's the FCC heat." As PopEater pointed out in an earlier post, the FCC does not regulate programming after 10 o'clock, meaning the 'Kimmel' performance would not have faced any scrutiny from the government regulatory office.
Lambert's visit to the ladies of 'The View' will be pre-taped - ABC can rest assured there will be no on-air shocks from the edgy performer. The appearance airs a day after he is honored by 'View' panelist Barbara Walters on her '10 Most Fascinating People of 2009' special, also on ABC.
